I was lucky enough to be at Ma Maison during a live music performance by Moses Robbins out in the courtyard, enjoyed the most amazing vegetarian slow-cooked tomato tart while sitting in the sunshine with a glass of delicious New Zealand wine (the wine list!) the staff are all so welcoming and helpful, I will be spending a lot of time here...

Hi freyjamin! Yes, Moses is a very talented musician and a good friend of Ma Maison! We have made some changes and want to encourage local music, so every weekend over the summer there will be live music on the terrace during happy hour ... including our very handsome 'singing waiter' Emiliano. Hope to be able to host you again and thanks very much for your kind feedback.

This is one of Akaroa's gems. The menu is well thought out, the food is delicious - and being vegan, I always appreciate a place that goes the extra mile to prepare food for me that isn't just "removing the meat, eggs and dairy," but rather going out of their way to give me a special dining experience.

Whenever I look to eat out for dinner, there is no other place to go but Ma Maison. From the moment you walk in, you are made welcome. It is the perfect place for every taste. From Indian curry, to Chinese wontons. From the best steak I have ever tried, to one of the best beer selections I have seen. No matter who you are or how much you want to spend-Ma Maison is the place. And that's just the food! The service is so welcoming and friendly that you don't want to leave. The only complaint I have is that Ma Maison isn't a 24/7 restaurant. Then I could get a world class steak at 3am!! 10/10 everyday!!
